Service 90: We are sorry but due to over running road works at the junction of Acacia Avenue we will be unable to serve bus stops along Fambridge Road, Washington Road, Dorset Road and Acacia Avenue until further notice. Regrettably, we will have to divert our buses between Maldon High Street and Maldon Morrisons via Spittal Road and the town by-pass. We have no control over these circumstances. Again, please accept our apologies to you all.
